Feather Extensions
« on: February 11, 2011, 03:55:41 PM »

So i got my hair done today, and i got these awesome Hair extension thingys! they are feathers that stick in your hair, and you can straighten them, curl them, wash them etc! You can't take them out when ever you want, but they do come out.

Anyone familiar with these? Anyone have them?


they are pretty cool. :) :D

As in FEATHERS feathers! They are actually fishing lure feathers, so they aren't as fragile as regular feathers!

Hate to be a buzzkill, but those are really really horrible to perpetuate ...

Is another report, and you can find more if you Google ... just food for thought.

Again, sorry to be the buzzkill.  :-\

Same can be said for leather products, furs, pate de foie gra (sp?) and hamburgers. If you're not a vegetarian who uses purey man-made products, then you are the recipient of *something* like this, so dwelling on one or the other specific doesn't really do anything about the big picture.

I'd fully disagree.

I can and do buy most of my leather products and know that the entire animal was harvested - not just a tiny part and then thrown away.

I am a full carnivore (especially since I'm eating paleo!) - but I try to know where my meat comes from, how it is harvested and raised and try to stay the heck out of grocery stores and utilize local farms instead.

If it doesn't bother you to use a decoration knowing how it is harvested - that's cool. But at least those that learn about it will then be making an informed decision and understanding the impact and deciding to accept that, whatever it might be.

I personally won't eat veal either and a variety of meats because of how the animal is raised or harvested - because the only true way to impact that industry is with one's money, IMO. But that's just how I roll, I don't attempt to make everyone do the same thing.

I'm okay with agreeing to disagree! :)

<peevish rant>

Is not carnivore. Is omnivore.

(Unless you really are a full-on animal-product-only person, but even in primal/paleo circles those are rare beasties.)

</peevish rant>

And yeah, it's a balancing act. An animal raised and killed for nothing but a few feathers is more upsetting to me than an animal who gives up it's life for a combination of food, leather, and decoration.  OK, the animal itself may not agree, but from my human POV it feels less icky that way. :)

*shrug* I won't ever eat veal either, or shellfish for that matter. I don't fish. I just don't think that a lighthearted thread about someone sharing something artistic is the correct time or place for a soap-box rant. That should go on the soapbox rant thread for people who'd actually *like* to read it. You have to remember that education is a choice, as well; if it's forced on everyone around you it becomes proselytizing. In short: You either *are* sorry for the buzzkill or you aren't. One or the other. Can't have your cake and eat it, too.

In your opinion.

Well, I'm of the opinion that if you open up a topic, one ought to expect folks will input their opinion on it, even if they might disagree or see it differently. That's how people learn, and in my opinion, it's a good thing, nothing to be feared, or shut down. This world has gotten WAYYY to PC happy - like it's not okay to share your opinion with anyone unless it matches their own, which is just silly to me.

I would hate to only have "me toos" respond to my posts, as I learn nothing from those really, it is the opposing (or differing  - if the word opposing has a disagreeable connotation to it that the word alone does not actually have) engage with me, and conversations usually entail two differing views coming together.

Do I hate being a buzzkill? Well I said it, so of course, who wants to rain on someone's parade? But there is an obligation to be a voice for those that cannot speak - something I myself would think those that love EQ would understand better than most, and share information that perhaps, harvesting something and throwing away the rest isn't great for the animal. so even though I felt moved to mention how the feathers were harvested, I can (and do) feel badly that it would be raining on someones parade. I would not equate that to cake nor eating it, but instead, just the facts.

The Great Auk was hunted to extinction for their feathers alone - the book The Great Auk (http://www.amazon.com/Great-Auk-Allan-W-Eckert/dp/0884963284) is one that I'd urge anyone to find and read, as it tells the tale of the last of the species ... perhaps it is that book which stirs me, as I read it when I was 7 years old and was greatly impacted by it. It is one of those books that I seriously think every human being ought to be required to read, along with Silent Spring and a few hundred others.

But as I said before, I am more than happy to agree to disagree. :) I'm okay if you do not agree with me, variety is a wonderful thing and I appreciate and embrace diversity.
